Agape Training School

The 10th annual Agape Ministry School has gotten off to a great start!

 

On the 14th of October, we began the first session of the 10th annual Agape Ministry School. Kiev Bible Institute was our gracious host for the week. Students from Belarus, Russia, and 11 regions of Ukraine made the trip to Kiev to study with us.  There were many guests and friends of Agape that took part in the opening ceremonies of the first session: Rustam Nazimovich Fatullayev, pastor of Tabernacle Church; Sergei Vladimirovich Manelyuk, Rector of KBI (Kiev Bible Institute); Alla Vasilyevna Nechiporuk, Dean at KBI; Oksana Vasilyevna Malishuk, Coordinater of KBI’s correspondence courses and Pavel Vasilyevich Fedoruk, Senior Pastor  for the Crimea region. Each of our guests addressed the students with words of greeting and challenge, as well as expressing their warmest wishes for the students in their studies.

 

On that first day of the first session, Pavel Vasilyevich Fedoruk shared foundational truths about the formation of the character of a minister of God, the importance of humility and being fully dedicated to God in ministry. On the second day, Boris Borisovich Gnatyshin taught through a seminar on “The Seven Laws of the Learner.”  Throughout the week, the students were inspired, challenged, motivated and equipped to give their best as they minister to the orphans in their own cities and towns.
